perfectionism, both a gift and a curse all at the same time. :rolleyes:
It sucks at times, and is great at others.
I know where you coming from. do tell the storry later though

By not telling the story, this thread is imperfect.

Now you're gonna have to type it.

I'm kinda the opposite. The only things I do are what makes me go faster and I don't put a whole lot into anything else. Even the mods that I do perform aren't "pulled off" as well as they could be. If I was a chef my food would look like crap but taste awesome. I miss out on alot of the finer appearance details that would make my car a "magazine" car. The mods I've done aren't rigged per say but they aren't even close to show quality. As long as it gets me down the quarter quicker. I guess that's one reason why I could never run my own speed shop. The customers would be like, "WTF MAN! Did you hire a trained baboon to install this boost controller!?!?" OK...maybe I'm not that bad! :p

We are tallking about 3/S's here...right? ;)

Consider yourself lucky!!! I was removing my pass. side seat and scratched the plastic cover on the bottom of the door sill. Nobody could see it but me- So that means I had to spend like $50 to buy a mint condition one of a local member because it was bugging me. Same thing with the little indentation on the pass. side door panel. I am soooo tempted to get in a new door panel because it's not "perfect".

Don't even get me started on my sound-deadening job (dynomat). I still feel I "damaged" the car when I took all the trim appart then put it together. Grrr....In some ways I envy people that can just beat the hell out a car for 5 years then sell it.

There must be a name for my "disorder"....Besides anal that is. :D

Well those of you who know me, know that everything I do has to be flawless, and there's nothing but the best for me, my cars, and anything else I decide to get..
Well let me share a little bit about my weekend.
I polished, cleaned, shaved, uncoated and/or painted, and waxed virtually everything beneith my Stealth..
Now.. you might wonder why I am doing that.. but I will explain to those of you who don't know in a moment..
I had everything dropped out from the car.. gas lines, suspension, drivetrain, brake cables.. basically everything that I could remove. I then did all my stupid shit with the wire brushing, sandblasting, grinding, etc..
After spending soo much time.. I finally got done.. I started putting back everything quickly and torquing it down. Damn I was done with my winter prep..
I moved my light around.. and one part wasn't quite dry when I had put the brake lines back up..
FUCK
I now had to clean the brake lines up.. and the fuel lines, because those were all shitty too.. and when taking those back out.. I scraped up the area where the old fuel tank was, and where the rear diff sat..
Damn Me.. I had to do this ALL over again just to redo the back of the car.. Just because I rushed putting shit back on when I should have let my paint and undercoating dry overnight, but did I? NOO because I had other stuff to do in the morning.. :mad:
All back off it came, and I just stripped it all down again, repolished it, then refinished it..
Now the car still sits, because I didn't have time to put everything back on.. and it rained a little last night, and is raining today.. :(
Now I get to another point.. and your probably wondering why I am so worried about rain.
Well at my current residence I have no garage.. :( That's why I was doing all this to begin with.. to allow it to sit outside till I can get a full trailer rigged up..
I can't work on it anymore for a while, because It's 30-40 degree's out, and will probably continue to be so, I will freeze my ass off.. and everything that is required to be done has to be in a heated area..
So basically I am skrewed until I can get enough more money to throw onto the perfect trailer.. and if you know me.. I won't settle for just something to stick the car in...
No.. I have to buy the huge flatbed equipment trailer, so I can keep everything in there.. and I mean EVERYTHING..
Ok.. now it's "so what".. right?
Well, I am also selling my suv, and I am getting something for the winter.. but can I settle on a car? No, I have no place to keep it..and I need money for everything else..
A truck? Nope, I have no place to keep it, and I have to put money into my Stealth, and the trailer..

I decided on a Bike for the winter.. a motorcycle basically.. (I know what your thinking :eek: ) But being whatever I have has to be perfect, in everyway... Meaning basically perfectly clean, and every single thing else you can think of...
I can keep the Bike inside the house, and keep it clean, washed and waxed.. (It can live in my bathroom :) )
I went out and looked at just about every bike that is made, then I test rode the ones with the most power, torque, as well as the ones I was told I "just have to ride"... so I did...
I went through bike after bike.. catching flaws with everyone..
I finally decided on one.. I basically found one I had to have (955i)... but the only thing was the color.. Caspian Blue..
Didn't do that much for me. Then I come to find out that there's a Aston Green being made.. but only in a limited number :(
I went to my dealer.. to talk to him about it..
Only to come to find out he isn't planning on getting one in...
And if he was, he gave me an estimate.. (it was outrageous:eek: )
Now I have to contact the Regional Distributor, and reserve myself one in green..
If I get a Bike in Green, I wont be able to get a helmet in green, or anything... because NO ONE MAKES FUCKING GREEN
But. it's my favorite color.. so I am trying to get everything custom made... why? because Im a fucking perfectionist. :(
Now I have to deal with this shit.. (No I can't get another color bike and paint it green, I dont like that shit :( )
I need to get my trailer done as soon as possible, because no matter how good something is.. I need it better. So far the biggest curse I've ever known, has been nothing is ever good enough.
(there's a lot more.. but my hand is getting tired.. maybe later)

yeah, I am the same exact way. In a way it's a sickness. A normal job the may take a normal person 1 hour to do will take me about 3 and a half just because I am a perfectionist.

You have a 40 lb. bag of rice in your pantry.
At some time in your life you have felt short.

Your parents say, "Don't forget your heritage."
You drive mostly Japanese cars.
You've learned to keep bargaining even if the prices are rock bottom.

At least once, you've started a joke with, "Confucius said........"
You know what bok choy is.
You've ever gotten little red envelopes around February.

You hear your name plus eee (optional) plus a yah! every time somebody calls you. (ie. jean-eee-yah or Mary-yah)

Idiot people try to impress you with pathetic imitation Asian languages like the ever so popular "ching chong woo bok chi, etc.
The biology lecture on marine life (seaweed, sea cucumbers, octopi) was last night's dinner.
Your ancestors 1,000 generations back invented the back scratcher.
At least one family member wears black wire/plastic frame glasses.
Your parents hover over your tired, caffeine drugged body at midnight to say, "In China (or other native country), we studied even more."
Your parents expect you'll be best friends with anyone off the street in any given area as long as they're Asian.
An Asian woman comes on campus and people ask, "Is that your mom? Well, then, is that your sister?"
Your relatives' houses smell like incense, mothballs, or both.
Your parents say "Calculus!? I took calculus in 8th grade!"
Everyone thinks you're good at math, except your parents who think you're slow.
Your parent's vocabulary is filled with "Ai-yahs and Wahs"
You like $1.75 movies.
You like $1.50 movies even more.
Your aunts and uncles bring you back adorable clothing from Asia with fuzzy bunnies, vinyl ducks, and English words that make no sense, in great colors like yellow, pink, magenta, orange, and the ever popular lime green.
Your relatives ask you if you've gained weight, or lost weight.
You never order chop suey, sweet and sour pork, or any other imitation oriental food.
You either REALLY want to go to UC or REALLY want to stay away from it.
Your parents have never kissed you.
Your parents have never kissed each other.
You learn about the birds and the bees from someone other than your parents.
You hear: "You want a stereo!? When I was your age, I didn't even have shoes!!"
People see a bunch of scribbles on chopsticks and ask you to translate.
You have to call just about all your parent's friends "Auntie and Uncle."
You have 12+ aunts and uncles.
At expensive restaurants, you order a delicious glass of water for your beverage and NEVER order dessert.
Your parents simply cut the green/black part off the bread and say "See? Still good. Eat."
The vast majority of people related to you wear glasses. Thick glasses .
You will most likely be taller than your parents.
Your parents have made you play the piano, the violin, or both.
You get nothing if you do well in school, but crapped on if you don't.
When going to other people's houses, you always bring a gift.
Your dad still pulls his socks up to his knees, you know, the ones with the blue and pink strips at the top.
Your family owns a tennis racquet, golf clubs, or both.
When at a restaurant, your parents and guests fight over the check for an hour.
The furniture in your house never matches the wallpaper, the carpet, the decorations, or any of the rest of the furniture.
You have rocks, leaves, and strange smelling unknown substances in your pantry used as medicine.
Your family always cheers for the Asian athletes on TV.
You own a rice cooker or two.
You buy soy sauce by the gallon.
Your family owns butcher knives bigger than your head.
Your parents tell you about how long it took for them to get to school, how horrible the weather was in their native country, and how much they still appreciated going.

Your head burns in the summertime.

Hey, I'm looking forward to eventually being able to pick up 94-95 TT's with less than $10k CND. At that price I won't care if the tranny/engine goes! I'll just rebuild it and know that it's good for another 100K km. It seems TT"s are really holding value right now. I remember seeing a few TT"s go for 24k CND (with ~60k on them) almost 3 years ago. Today, the same cars are still going for around 22k. The NA's go for only a couple thousand less than the TT's as well. The 2nd gen's are really holding there value for some reason.
